Color between a bronze and gold, darker than most examples I've seen, indicative of the beefy malt profile. This bottle didn't retain well. Could have been the glass.
Herbal and spicy hops, lemon. Floral too. Lightly toasty malt, sweetness. Very fragrant and enticing.
Bready and sweet, with some of the same lightly toasty aroma found in the aroma. Lemongrass flavor in the hops, a little spicy bitterness. Delicious hop profile that trumps most pale ales.
Creamy feel and soft body, very fine carbonation.
This is one of the best lagers on the market. Very fairly priced. Goes down so easy. Easy to get swept up in fancy limited release beers and forget how good a classic like this is. The 5.8% is a nice number for those of us who like our beers a bit beefier. A great beer to spend a night with.
